These earrings are the epitome of glam! They are made with super sparkly Herkimer diamonds. Herkimer diamonds are not actually diamonds at all, rather they are colorless quartz that is naturally double-terminated (pointy on both ends). The shape of these beads comes straight from Mother Nature, they have simply been drilled to allow wire to pass through. This pair is 14kt rose gold-fill. The earrings measure 1 and 7/16" in length including the ear wires. All components are handmade, and the "horseshoe" shaped components are textured for more sparkle. These earrings are perfect for a night out! Or glam up your every day look by wearing them with a blouse and jeans.
What does gold-filled mean?
Gold-filled components start with a base metal core and have a (usually 14kt) real gold coating, bonded to the core with heat and pressure. The component must be at least 5% gold by weight. This is NOT the same as gold plating. Unlike plated gold, gold-filled items are likely to last a lifetime and the gold will not wear off.
